This warm spring weather has me making all the heart eyes at the flowers for sale outside home improvement and grocery stores. I’m normally such a fall and winter person but within days of having Cora Beth in November I was wishing for warmer weather! Being cooped up inside with a newborn can make you a little stir crazy, I just wanted to go to the grocery store without having to dress us both in a million layers!
I won’t lie, one of my favorite things about being a girl mom is the outfits and the bows! Just give me everything pink and girly! While I don’t put a bow on Cora Beth every day (mostly because we’re hanging out in our pjs 5 out of 7 days a week) when I do I have to use headbands since little miss doesn’t quite have a whole lot of hair yet! And if you’ve shopped for bows you know they can get pricey pretty quick! I did buy one white and one black bow from Baby Bling Bows because I love them! But they can look a tad big on her little bitty head so I sometimes opt for a smaller bow! I set out to make my own to save a little money and since I was successful I wanted to share with y’all how to diy a simple baby bow headband for you to make your little one!
I wanted to take the time to write Cora Beth’s birth story. I know as time passes the details will start to slip from my mind (especially since I was foggy from magnesium). My sweet girl entered into the world in a way I really couldn’t have imaged that she would and to be honest most of the prayers I prayed for her birth went unanswered. However, at the end of the day I had a healthy baby girl and for that I’m so grateful!
When I found out I was pregnant one of the things I was really looking forward to was decorating the nursery, especially once I found out we were having a girl! I love how her room turned out and it’s probably the only room in our house that I consider “done”! I had so much fun crafting for her room and my sister-in-law made her quilt and bed skirt (which is adjustable)! So prepare for picture overload because I’m just a teensy bit proud of it!
I can’t believe my pregnancy has come and gone and I now have an adorable 6 week old daughter (it’s still hard to wrap my brain around that I’m a mom)! I miss being pregnant a little bit and am already looking forward to the day we grow our family even more, although it will hopefully be a couple years!
My third trimester was September 16th – November 21st!
I think every momma to be discovers throughout her pregnancy a few things that make growing a human being a little bit easier! I thought I’d share with y’all my pregnancy must haves and maybe you can give them a try during your pregnancy and find that they could be one of yours too!
(Note: I’m not getting endorsed in anyway shape or form for this post it’s honestly things I have found to make my pregnancy easier)
It’s so surreal to me that I’ve had a baby shower! I always wondered what it would be like to have one and it definitely exceeded anything I could’ve imagined! My sister and three of my mom’s friends work so hard to throw me such a gorgeous shower that was Kate Spade meets storybook.
It’s the last day of September and it’s finally starting to feel like fall in middle Tennessee, although, I won’t hold my breath as the temperature is likely to spike back up! And at the end of this post I have some free fall art prints for you!
Fall is my favorite season. Pumpkin flavored everything, soup in the crockpot, light jackets, windows open, the leaves change into gorgeous oranges, reds, and yellows! It’s just the best! And I’m so thankful that God allows for new seasons, not just in the weather though but in life as well.
I hit 28 weeks this past Thursday, officially putting me in my third trimester! And no one is more surprised than me that this pregnancy has flown by so far! Although I have a feeling it’ll start to slow down as I approach my due date!
I thought it might be fun to recap my second trimester more for me to be able to go back and read later on as I start to forget than for any other reason! I wish I had thought to do it with my first trimester but it was basically 13 weeks of exhaustion and some nausea.
I think one of the hardest decisions of pregnancy is choosing a name for your little bundle of joy! I mean they’re stuck with it their whole life, that’s a big responsibility! However, girl names have always been easier for me to pick out than boy names so we got lucky there!
